Morningside Lights is an annual outdoor procession featuring dozens of lanterns built by volunteers from the Columbia University and surrounding neighborhoods during a week of free public workshops. Students, families, and members of the community are all welcome to attend the workshops and procession.
Last year, this beloved event went virtual due to COVID-19. This, their 11th year, Morningside Lights is back with in-person workshops and procession! Save the dates, September 17 through 23rd, with the Procession on September 24th at 8:00pm.
Morningside Lights returns for its 10th year, and invites you to come out and PLAY! Join the Event virtually, and be a part of a digitally-linked collection of home-built lanterns, connecting works of Shakespeare to our present-day experience.

NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell J. Silver, FAICP, will join staff to clean the park and educate the public on the importance of doing their part to keep our parks clean by joining one of the many volunteer activities hosted as part of the campaign.
Sculpture artist Zaq Landsberg created and presented the illustrations for this piece during the last administration, prior to COVID-19 and our citywide shutdown. It was inspired by Buddhist imagery, and meant to depict our iconic American landmark, weary, reclining, and asking the question ~ “what stage of America are we in.” COVID-19 closed our city, and Reclining Lady lay waiting, like all of us, for better days.
